For the first time in 52 years, the global Scouting extravaganza will be held in the United States!
In 2019 more than 30,000 Scouts and leaders from 160 countries around the world will converge on The Summit Bechtel Reservation in West Virginia for the 24th World Scout Jamboree.
The event will provide opportunities to raise awareness about global issues, explore the environment, participate in community service, make friends from around the world, and deepen understanding of developments in science and technology. The world jamboree is a unique opportunity for participants to experience an exciting program of activities, including: Global Development Village, City of Science, Cross Road of Culture, and the Peace Program.
Participants will live and learn with fellow Scouts from around the world. They will be housed in tents along with the BSA contingent but will soon venture out to mingle with tens of thousands of people for two weeks of activities and adventure. That’s right, a world fellowship exercise on an enormous scale!
